1948 The INVACAR

This is part 2 of my visit to The Museum of disABILITY History. I was so intrigued by The INVACAR that I had to learn more about it. I had never heard of or seen one before. According to Elvis Payne at 3-wheelers.com, “The Invacar Ltd (UK) was established in 1948 by Oscar Greeves after having built a 3-wheeler for his paralyzed cousin, Derry Preston-Cobb. As a result of the many casualties from the second World War Greeves realised the need for such transport to be widely available. After contacting the government they agreed to pay for the vehicles to be made of which sold in great numbers.”
